Dec 14, 2015, 10:00 ET from American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education is pleased to announce the return of Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation. This year's program will be held Thursday - Saturday, January 28 - 30, 2016 at the Hotel Van Zandt in Austin, Texas.

Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation is designed to answer the questions that most concern eminent domain lawyers and their clients, and addresses the multitude of legal issues arising from the substantive and procedural exercise of the awesome power of eminent domain.

The program will kick off with a welcome from Austin Mayor Steve Adler, who was formerly an eminent domain lawyer in private practice. It also features Professor Ilya Somin on the impact of Kelo and the limits of eminent domain, as well as retired Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Paul H. Anderson (and former eminent domain lawyer), who will provide a judicial view on the art of effective negotiation.

Other topics include:

  • Property Rights and the First Ten Years of the Roberts Court
  • Using Technology at Trial to Enhance the Persuasiveness of Your Case
  • Advice to Condemnees from Condemnors
  • Handling the Tricky (and Often Undisclosed) Issues in an Eminent Domain Case
  • Relocation: Personal Property, Fixtures, and Equipment – How to Succeed
  • The Uneconomic Remnant and Other Overlooked Property Interests
  • Pipelines and Energy Corridors: Valuation Perspectives
  • First Amendment for Fifth Amendment Lawyers: Free Speech, FOIA, and RLUIPA Claims

A notable highlight will be a live interview with the producer of the upcoming film, "Little Pink House," the adaptation of the story behind the U.S. Supreme Court's notorious 2005 eminent domain decision in Kelo v. City of New London.

"For practitioners in the field of takings law and property rights only one national seminar year after year has tackled the issues that challenge courts and make and shape the law," said planning chair Joseph Waldo, of Waldo & Lyle, P.C. in Norfolk, Virginia. "Whether a litigator for property owners or condemning authorities or in allied fields such as appraisers or engineers this seminar is one you do not want to miss."
